    Default lateral collateral ligament pain?

    Hi guys, did a quick search and didn't find too much on lcl injuries so decided to post

    Recently ive been experiencing pain on the outside of my LEFT knee. Now i am pretty sure that it is the lateral collateral ligament that is hurting...
    It usually happens after i do a smash that's somewhat around the head. *ex. i am right handed, the person clears to the left side, so i started to move left and do a semi-hop smash* Kind of like this i suppose* pic--> http://cache.daylife.com/imageserve/...KEcNQ/610x.jpg

    I usually have a good warm up before i try to do those kinds of shots because from experience, that ligament will hurt if i do that shot. But nowadays, it seems that whenever i do that shot, the ligament will hurt anyways, regardless of whether i warmed up or not. So i am forced instead to take those kinds of shots slower.. and drop them instead

    I was wondering what can i do? Is there some sort of stretch that i should do pre-game?

    I feel that it is just a minor sprain.. because after i get home there is no pain or anything, the pain is only there during game... but it is still annoying and i am not sure how to take care of it.

    Thanks

    You should see a physiotherapist to diagnose the problem =)

    If there is a tear or rupture in the ligament then you need surgery to have it fixed. Go to a doctor to get a scan.
